One patients who live in our hospital now was told that his creatinine level increases to 2.8 from 1.3 last year and now is worried about his kidney. He is eager to know what does this condition mean? And is there any damage on his kidney? For this condition, I will explain it in the following contents.
Elevated creatinine level is usually used to measure kidney function, as the level of it in blood is kept in a stable range with the help of kidney. You see that the creatinine level was high already last year which means you have kidney problem for a real long time. Actually, creatinine is the metabolic waste of muscles which should only be discharged by kidneys. Creatinine will not increase when kidney was just impaired slightly and mostly it takes a long time at that period of kidney disease. And once creatininine rises obviously, kidney is usually damaged more than 50%. Judging from your now creatinine level, we can see that your kidney disease has developed into Stage 4 Kidney Disease from Stage 3 Kidney Disease. The key treatment of high creatinine lies in blocking further development of renal fibrosis. Meanwhile repairing pathyologic injury of early-stage fibrosis and recovering the normal functional status of renal organization structure, creatinine will naturally decrease at that time.
There is no good treatment for western medicines, so to save your kidneys, what we should do is to use Traditional Chinese Medicine to expand blood vessels and decrease blood coagulation, thus improving blood circulation of the kidneys. In addition, TCM decreases inflammatory reaction and degrade extracellular matrixes (ECM). This therapy contributes to stopping the progression of fibrosis of renal functional cells. And only in thus way, will we stop the kidneys from a further damage and to have the high creatinine level decreased.
Through the above analysis, we can see that you should take immediate and effective treatment to stop or at least delay the development of illness condition. Have any questions? If so, welcome to talk with our doctors online or leave a message below and we are always here to help you.
